madness is a naughty nurse (surprise)

It seems I have been a naughty nurse. Apparently I broke the rules, stomped on the Nightengale pledge, turned the hospital's mission statement on its ear. So there I was, going along being the professional (!) I am 99.999999% of the time and BOOM! a moment of naughtiness ensues. Or at least, I"VE BEEN TOLD that I am naughty.

It seems I am going to have to spend some time in the ER naughty room in the time out chair explaining my actions. THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES that are yet to be determined...LET'S JUST SAY that there will be consequences and I will be watched henceforth for a designated period of time.  If I even THINK of being naughty again, well....lets just say that I WON"T KNOW WHAT HIT ME!! Future consequences may involve being the designated frequent flyer nurse and wearing the "bad nurse" hat.

So I'll be in the ER conference room writing: "Bob's Ghetto Hospital is a wonderful place to work and I will appreciate it from now on and never be a naughty nurse again" 1,000 times.

Hang in there. Mission statements and all that guff are just for show. We all know why we're here.

I don't understand... shouldn't that sort of behaviour have been recognized for what it is, and gotten you promoted? I thought they liked leadership, those higher-up pinheads? You must have been doing TOO MUCH with TOO LITTLE and doing it very successfully. Next time don't work so hard. Being a hard-worker on the frontline is just plain naughty. Love the blog. Keep up the good work!

What did you do? I've been handed a final written warning despite doing my best in a critical care ward for a hospital I've worked in for years. I haven't got a political bone in my body and I'm not an ass licker so I'll stay where I am for years. Sanctioned with overbearing 'supportive management' because I'm naughty. .. like you

Find another job. We all know your hospital sucks. Find a travel nurse job, maybe. Two of my ER R.N. friends did just that recently and are now enjoying the non-ghetto life in some great locations.

(Ditto what someone else said about you displayed leadership being the problem.)

Good enough for you, ya bitter bish. I wish I knew what hospital you work in. I would make sure the ombudsman at your hospital got a link to your disgraceful blog. Sick of you and all your kind. Lazy bitter bitches.
